Santa hats at the ready, Part Two is a go!
Gifts for Him
This year we’re picking out our Roam card holder for the man in our life. Its sleek profile lends itself perfectly to pocket carriage; ideal for those men who like to travel light.
Crafted from sumptuous matte Italian leather, this elegant, simple design is effortlessly luxurious; it’s the perfect marriage of form and function. In addition to this rich burgundy, we make this timeless style in Deep Navy, Emerald Green, Midnight Black and Chocolate Brown.
Subtly blind embossed with our makers mark to ensure minimalist details, the vegetable tanned leather wears and ages beautifully. For an extra special gift, this card holder can be personalised with something unique to its new owner. From classic monogramming to a perfectly honed note, full details and options can be found in our Personalisation blog post.
Something for Mum
When it comes to mum, it's the thought that counts. The Accordion Purse says it all. It’s a compact and stylish design that has three sections to hold her coins as well as notes and cards. It's the perfect size to fit in a handbag and we know how much mum’s are into keeping things organised.
We make these cuties from lightweight, supple Italian leather which is perfect for their concertinaed construction. The sections are securely fastened with Gold poppers and our logo is discreetly hot foil stamped in Gold on the reverse. We have a wide variety of colours to choose from too, from muted tones to eye popping brights.
And for those Mothers who deserve an extra indulgence, you’ll be chuffed to learn that these little beauties are part our our Roam range so you can also purchase coordinating (or contrasting?) accessories such as the Travel Pouch and the Clutch Bag.
Something a little different
Are you struggling to hunt down that unusual gift idea for that special someone who likes things a little out of the ordinary? You’ve come to the right place. As you know, Village Leathers’ design MO is Classic, timeless pieces that will last a lifetime. But at the same time, we’re a workshop bustling with creative personalities and sometimes, we just can’t help but let our experimental sides run wild.
This 1 ½” wide Contrast Stitched Leather Belt makes a real statement. As usual it’s crafted from our favourite vegetable tanned leather, but the edges of the belt have been skillfully dyed and polished for an attentive finish. We then meticulously sew an oversized, super strong nylon thread all around the edge of the belt to complete a thoroughly detailed piece of work; something to be worn conspicuously.
Just in case:
This is my favourite gift. When you know there’s someone missing from your nice list, but you can’t remember who. You don’t want to be rushing around on Christmas eve, eventually collecting a below par present - you need a reserve gift. You need something that will be perfect for whomever this mystery recipient turns out to be.
Our Classic 1 ¼” leather belt is a perfect everyday wardrobe staple. Not too wide, not too narrow, it is the ultimate unisex belt to compliment any style. This thick yet supple leather keeps it wearer comfy all day buckles can even be swapped to suit the wardrobe. And if it turns out you were super organised all along and this Just In Case gift is surplus to requirements, it sounds to me like you deserve to keep it for yourself.
